I approached this novel as essentially a man meets woman and they fall in love. It is really the story of Francis and her journey.As a fifty something woman could relate to her. The pace appealed to me.Easy to get into and to then ride along with until you are hooked. I saw the genre as more about religion and belief than anything Her guardian angel is someone I wanted to believe in and wish that I had one. I was envious of Francis, her self reliance and tranquility, the way her life flowed gently.
I often think back to special moments and scenes from this special novel.
